Other Notes: dark!Effie, from the girl-on-fire ficathon
When a boy from District 2 gutted a boy from District 7 Effie Trinket smiled, her eyes aglow and shining as the child attempted to hold his organs inside. She laughed as the boy from District 2 was stabbed by the girl from District 1. A fellow Escort bought a round of drinks for the room and Effie held hers aloft and cheered when her one of her own Tributes killed another child. Haymitch watched on from where he had plopped himself on a couch, disgust written clearly on his face.
